Driver fined for swearing at speed camera

`A motorist has been fined 80 for making offensive gestures towards a speed camera as he drove home from work.

Simon Thompson, 41, extended his middle finger at the mobile speed camera as he passed it whilst driving safely under the speed limit. Simon, from Colchester in Essex was astonished when half an hour later the two policemen who had been operating the camera knocked on his front door. The officers handed Simon a fixed penalty notice for 80 for making offensive gestures under the Public Order Act.’
